Gifted Gorgeousness SAL January

Well, I didn't decide to drop out of the SAL this year, I am just late. So far, 2017 has not been a pleasant year, everything seems to go wrong these day (after the break i in my bf mothers house AND her accident, our car just broke down when my bf was on his way to the hospital... we just hope that it is something that can be fixed and is not to expensive...) and so I just put blogging off.
I had a little birthday celebration on Friday (I usually don't do birthdays, but from time to time I invite some friends). We had a lovely barbecue and a lot of fun. I didn't get any stitching stuff, but a bunch of books, which is also great since reading is my second biggest hobby right after stitching.

But back to the topic - welcome to another round of the GG SAL, hosted by our one and only Jo. Last year I managed to post every month and I want to do the same this year. I got a lot done in 2016 and hope that 2017 will go along, too.
So far I only worked on my Santa Stocking, the one I am doing for my boyfriend. It's not much, but every stitch counts, right?
I went from here:
To here:
I decided to try a rotation this year and the plan is to stitch on my Stocking each month, just pick it up from time to time and hope that the stitches will add up. I did my best to include a GG SAL project every month, so I will hopefully have more to show then.

Happy stitching!


  1. That looks like quite a lot of stitching to me! It's looking good apart from his manic eyes. Hope your 2017 starts to improve.

  2. Great update, and good idea to help move the project along. I hope the rest of the year is much better for you and your family.

  3. Nice progress! Yes, every stitch counts. Sorry to hear that your year has gotten off to a bad start. Trust me, I know how you feel. A belated Happy Birthday to you and I hope things look better soon.

  4. 2017 doesn't seem to start off too well for anyone :( I hope it will get better for you! Nice progress though.

  5. It looks to me like you made great progress! It's so nice to get areas filled in. Sorry to hear that 2017 is causing you trouble. I hope the year improves from now on!

  6. I love the look of the Santa, and you have some really nice progress to show on him.

  7. I think you made a lot of progress on Santa. It looks lovely! Hope the year gets better and the car and especially your family and loved ones are well.

  8. Oops, I didn't comment last month! I did log you on my spreadsheet though so that's OK. Nice progress on Santa.
